gan to rise o rapidly that it (became
evident that the dam. power-house
and contents, costing $1,500,000, were
in Hmminent danger.
Houses, trees and debris comknei-ed
descending the river and piled up
against the tipper face of the dafm. The
crisis came shortly after 11 a'clock,
when suddenly with a report like the
roar of the ocean a great wedge,
twentyvfive feet high. 500 feet ide and
about eight feet thick, . rolled out of
the center section of the dam, down
its- face, a sixty-foot fall, into tlie rivet
below. This left a hanging gap in the
very middle of the dam, through which
the debris and water freely poured,
while the flood, already raging- was
threatening everything in its iath.
The released -water paiired into the

them. A crowd ot white people, num

the dam in tents, were seen jusfi before

Notwithstanding the fact that it is
considered olinost impossible jjto oh-'
tain the appropriation necessary for)

duced the proposed amendment to the
sundry civil bill, appropriating jthe full j
amount estimated, for the conrpMioit
of the work, $2,500,000. and had it re
ferred to the committee on commerce:
of which 'lie is a member. Tlie (senator '
does not expect the committee to rc- j
commend an appropriation for rlie full
amount, as such action would be un
precedented, hut he believes .tlie Ore
gon delegation can secure earlier; actaon
by having it before the coiiwniiuce for j
early discussion, than by waiting for the
river and harbor hill. It is lioin-d tint!
the full consideration of the matter by
the committee will meet with ku.-li an
understanding of the necessity for early
